Mentor Millennials with the Gift of… Connections Recently I was quoted in a Forbes article on "the best presents for the millennials in your life." My suggestion was an introduction/meeting/connection with someone who could be important to the young person's career. It received a lot of positive reaction — especially among ambitious millennials eager to make their mark. It reminded me of the people who've done that for me. People who made introductions to others who turned into lifelong mentors and friends. I would be so much less personally and professionally if they weren't in my life. So your networking efforts this week, month, or year could be reversed: Instead of just seeking out people that you can meet; seek out people that you can introduce to someone else.
